Geomag Magicubes Review and Giveaway

Lily is a huge fan of construction, she loves anything that she can sit down to and concentrate on and build. So when I got offered the Magicubes to review I just had to give them a try with Lily. 

2 boxes of Magicubes which are made by Geomag, arrived at our door. The boxes were so colourful and child friendly that as soon as Lily saw them she couldn't wait for me to get them out of the box. 

We were sent a Safari Pack and a Polar Animals Pack. 


The safari pack comes with 14 blocks and some cards with four building ideas on. The polar animal pack comes with 8 bricks and also has some idea cards included. Some of the animal ideas you could make are Giraffe, Lion, Parrot, and Camel in the safari set and in the polar set you could make a Polar Bear Seal, Penguin or Whale. 



They are so colourful and on each side of the blocks it has a different pattern which is part of an animal. The way you play with these cubes kind of reminds me of a jigsaw but in brick form, which is great. You could use the cards to build an animal that they have suggested or you could be creative and just build what ever you like as there are many different things you can make with these. 

Lily just concentrated on building rather than actually making animals and the whole concept of being able to make a animal kind of went over her head. She did really enjoy building with these though as there is something that is different and special about them. These clever little bricks actually are magnetised so then they stick together with the other bricks. This is great for tower building and construction as its much easier to do and with less chance of falling down. 



Lily hasn't managed to make an animal yet but she did love seeing the ones that I built and kept asking me to build more for her. 

The quality of the bricks is brilliant. They are really strong and made from a really nice plastic. They look like they won't ware and tear easily and will last a while. Which is great as building is one thing that children never seem to get bored of doing. 


As well as being super fun, there are so many learning factors to this toy. It encourages hand and eye co-ordination, fine motor skills and encourages the use of the imagination. 

Lily really enjoyed playing with these cubes and she has kept going back to them to play with again over and over. We haven't actually tidied them away yet as she has played with them so much. But when we do, another great thing about them all sticking together is that they can be stored in her construction tub and they don't separate and get lost. 


Overall i'm really impressed and happy with this toy and if your child loves construction and building then this is a really good option of something you could buy for them. It retails at £35 for the safari set and £25 for the polar animals set.

I now have a competition for you where you have the chance to win a set of Safari Magicubes for your little one. Enter on the Gleam app below -
